Over 1,000 burials for Bures St Mary, Suffolk, from 1559-1650! Lots more Bures transcriptions to follow, up to the mid-1700s. And remember – Bures St Mary includes Bures Hamlet, which is in Essex.
I’m transcribing Poor Law records for Wivenhoe, Essex. There’s a variety of records – people who arrived in Wivenhoe who were “settled” elsewhere, apprenticeships, people leaving Wivenhoe to move further afield, and more. While nearby places such as Colchester, Elmstead and East Donyland frequently come up in the records, there’s some surprising links with places in Yorkshire, Cumberland, and County Durham. It’s worth taking a look!
Over 1,200 burials for Mendlesham, Suffolk, from 1662-1749 now online! That’s the last of my Mendlesham transcriptions – that’s over 5,000 baptisms, over 3,000 burials, and nearly 1,000 marriages from 1558-1819!
Over 1,300 baptisms for Barking, Suffolk (including Needham Market and Darmsden), from 1724-1765 just added! These are the last of my Barking transcriptions – there’s over 7,000 baptisms, over 5,000 burials and over 1,500 marriages from the mid-1500s to the mid-1700s.
I first started to transcribe parish registers for Bures St Mary in Suffolk some years ago, and I’m now carrying on, working through to the mid-1700s. I’ve just added baptisms 1660-1700. Lots more transcriptions for Bures St Mary in the way!
Note: Bures St Mary is in Suffolk, but part of the parish – Bures Hamlet – is just over the River Stour in Essex. And in Essex, you’ll find another parish nearby, called Mount Bures. If someone lived in Bures Hamlet, they would appear in the records for Bures St Mary, as that’s officially the parish they live in. If someone says “Bures in Essex”, always make sure you check if they mean Mount Bures or Bures Hamlet. And it’s pronounced Bewers, which is sometimes how you’ll find it spelled too.
Over 2,000 burials for Barking, Suffolk – including Needham Market and Darmsden – from 1692-1766 now online!
Over 500 marriages for Mendlesham, Suffolk, now added, from 1558-1749. Before 1754, couples had more freedom in where they could get married – find marriages for people from all over Suffolk, with some couples from Norfolk too!
I’ve finally finished transcribing Kersey, Suffolk, from 1561-1812. There’s nearly 3,500 baptisms, over 2,000 burials, and nearly 1,000 marriages. Somewhere in all those records, you might find an elusive member of your family tree, or several generations!
